Metodología docente

Evaluación (instrumentos de evaluación, criterios de evaluación y porcentaje sobre la calificación final.)

Evaluación Ordinaria

Article 17 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that the ordinary assessment system (evaluación ordinaria) will preferably be based on the continuous assessment of students, except for those who have been granted the right to a single final assessment (evaluación única final, which is an assessment method that only takes a final exam into account).

In the continuous assessment system:

  • Class attendance is mandatory in at least 70% of the sessions in order to pass the course in the ordinary call, being necessary an active participation in the sessions. Failure to comply with this requirement will prevent the course from being approved in its ordinary call and the qualification of the course will be “not presented”.
  • In addition, it is also necessary to pass the written tests to pass the course.

Covered these two requirements, the final grade in the course is obtained from the weighting of the following assessment items (the weight of each item in the final assessment is shown in parentheses):

  • Written tests (20%)
  • Oral presentation (40%)
  • Resolution and/or commentary of exercises-discussions-reports (25%)
  • Attendance and active participation in sessions (15%)

Evaluación Extraordinaria

Article 19 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that students who have not passed a course in the ordinary assessment system (evaluación ordinaria) will have access to an extraordinary assessment session (convocatoria extraordinaria), in which they will have the opportunity to obtain 100% of their mark by means of single exam.

The assessment in this exam will comprise:

  • Exam with objective questions referred to the theoretical content (50%). The exam is considered passed with a mark equal to or above 5 (out of 10).
  • Resolution of a case study (50%). This part is considered passed with a mark equal to or above 5 (out of 10).

Evaluación única final

Article 8 of the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations establishes that students who are unable to follow continuous assessment methods due to justifiable reasons shall have recourse to a single final assessment (evaluación única final).

In order to opt for a single final assessment (evaluación única final), students must send a request, using the corresponding online procedure (https://sede.ugr.es/procs/Gestion-Academica-Solicitud-de-evaluacion-unica-final/), to the coordinator of the master’s programme, in the first two weeks of the course or in the two weeks following their enrolment (if the enrolment has taken place after the classes have already begun). The coordinator will communicate this information to the relevant teaching staff members, citing and verifying the reasons why the student is unable to follow the continuous assessment system.

For students authorized to do a single final assessment, the final single assessment will comprise:

  • Exam with objective questions referred to the theoretical content (50%). The exam is considered passed with a mark equal to or above 5 (out of 10).
  • Resolution of a case study (50%). This part is considered passed with a mark equal to or above 5 (out of 10).
